Abstract
SOI-based trapezoidal waveguide with 45° reflector for non-coplanar light bending is proposed and demonstrated. The proposed structures include 45° micro-reflector and silicon trapezoidal waveguide. Due to the SOI-based trapezoidal waveguide with 45° reflector, light wave can be coupled into silicon waveguide easily and have higher coupling efficiency. All of structures are fabricated using a single-step wet etching process. The RMS roughness of waveguide sidewall and 45° micro-reflector is about 30 nm. The coupling efficiency of proposed structure is -4.51 dB, and misalignment tolerance are 42 μm at horizontal direction and 41 μm at vertical direction. The multi-channel trapezoidal waveguide is also demonstrated. This device can transfer the light wave at the same time, and its cross talk is about -50 dB.
